Bloomquist Wins CMH Diamond Nationals after Francis Breaks at Lucas Oil Speedway



WHEATLAND, Mo. (July 16) - Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN inherited the top spot when race leader, Steve Francis had driveline failure with six laps to go. He went on to lead the rest of the way in the 5th Annual CMH Diamond Nationals on Saturday Night at Lucas Oil Speedway. John Blankenship of Williamson, WV finished second, followed by Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN. Polesitter, Tyler Reddick of Corning, CA and Bub McCool of Vicksburg, MS rounded out the top-five. The event was sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the Lucas Oil MLRA Late Model Series.

Reddick led the first 15 laps of the race until Bloomquist took over the top spot with 18 laps scored. Bloomquist's lead was short-lived as Francis took his car to the high-side of the track and swept by Bloomquist for the lead on lap 21.

Francis pulled away from Bloomquist as he continued to power around the top side of the track. Bloomquist ran a solid second during this stretch as a terrific battle for third was going between Reddick, Blankenship, Owens, and McCool went back-and-forth for the rest of the race.

With Francis in command, he held an eight-to-ten car length lead over Bloomquist and appeared to be on his way to his first win of the year. Francis had two lapped cars between himself and Bloomquist as the sizable lead looked strong enough at the time.

With six laps to go Francis slowed suddenly on the backstretch as his driveline failed ending his night. Bloomquist then inherited the lead, but a caution with five laps to go for Jared Landers set up a five-lap dash to the finish. Reddick held second briefly but a three-wide race between Reddick, Blankenship, and Owens resulted in Reddick getting shuffled back.



Blankenship and Owens tried their best to stay with Bloomquist, who went on to win for the ninth time in LOLMDS competition this season. He extended his points lead to 60 over Owens. "Sometimes you have to be lucky and we were tonight, Francis went to the top before I could get there and he was strong tonight no doubt about it. It looked like we were going to finish second again here, but to come home with the win, it feels good. The car is running exceptionally well with Lucas Oil in the Roush-Yates Ford."

Blankenship matched his career best in the Coal America's Energy, Rocket. Owens followed suit in his Mike Reece-owned, Reece Monument Company, Bloomquist Ford. Reddick came home fourth in his Broken Bow Records, Bloomquist Chevrolet and McCool's Southern Belle, Moyer Victory Circle capped off the night with the fifth spot.

Completing the top ten were Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR; Chris Simpson of Oxford, IA; Don O'Neal of Martinsville, IN; Brad Neat of Dunnville, KY and Ray Cook of Brasstown, NC.

In preliminary action Tyler Reddick captured his first career Red Buck Cigars Fast Time among the 36 entrants. Heat race winners were Reddick, Francis, Bloomquist and Bloomquist. The B-Mains went to Terry Phillips and Earl Pearson Jr.

The event was taped by Lucas Oil Production Studios to air on SPEED at a later date.
